for secretary clinton and host of the radio talk show host of the dana show. let me start with you. i'm getting weary with the relentless attacks first on susan rice and now on hillary clinton. there's a whisper to it and it's getting, i think, washington orientated rather than in the national interest of america. what do you think? >> i think there are legitimate questions that still need to be answered. as hillary clinton said today, the fbi is still working on the investigation. director mueller was in libya and tunisia recently. i get disappointed when people give half of the story. the guy has been released. as hillary clinton said today, yes, but he's under constant surveillance within tunisia and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch ther
to bring you back in and bring in our chief congressional correspondent dana bash so we can have this whole conversation as we're watching and awaiting the secretary of state there to testify before the house foreign affairs committee. and, dana bash, do we have you seated? >> i am, hi, brooke. >> nice to see you. as we await what will possibly be a little bit more fiery, right, questioning from members of the house as opposed to what we saw with the senate foreign relations committee earlier this morning, first, just give me a little bit of a preview, what are you hearing, what are you expecting to come from this, this afternoon? >> reporter: we're probably going to hear very similar lines of questioning that we heard, especially from republicans in this senate. it got maybe a little bit more fiery, a little more intense in the senate than we would have anticipated. we do anticipate that kind of atmosphere in the house, which is kind of the way the house tends to be, the house is run by republicans. and even the house republican chair anticipated it to be that kind of atmosphere because i
tapper has been watching this with me. dana bash is on capitol hill. this is vintage hillary clinton. she responded to the direct accusations, the challenges but the republicans especially -- and we'll get to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talk
's bipartisan goodwill already seems to be a very distant memory. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by. >> reporter: republicans are arguing that the president is trying to foist the center right country in the words of the senate minority leader. he said, not a great way to start off the second term. the senate republican leader had his sound bite on the president's speech ready to go. >> the era of liberalism is unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech certainly brings back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> reporter: far different from the restrained response the house gop leader gave us hours after the speech. >> you know, i think that the president did a fine job certainly laying out what he would like to see happen as far as the future of the country. we have some differences. hopefully we can bridge those differences. >> reporter: cantor was coming from a bipartisan post inaugural lunch. now with the inauguration over and the pressure to be respectful past, conservatives are eager to share their disgust. >> he's trying to throw a bone
many crisis. we have a number of new members on the house committee, and they have been warned, as dana barb reported this morning, noted they had to be told by the chairman of the house committee to be respectful. he was concerned, perhaps, that some of them were going to try to make a names for themselves perhaps inappropriately. >> and the secretary is now being seated. you see the photographers there. dana bash is on capitol hill, walk us through it, the senator from new jersey will open, and then what happens. >> that's right, he will have a statement, and then the ranking republican will as well, and then we will hear from secretary clinton. generally these hearings go on and on. and bob menendez is starting now. >> let's listen. >> since the full senate has not passed the committee resolution officially seating members, i want to ask unanimous consent of members to participate in today's hering. if there is no objection, so ordered. madame secretary, let me welcome you and thank you for honoring your commitment to come before the committee after the administrative review board's
